In CA42 morning started with architect making a drawing of the sectioned part of the well.  Then sectioning of the well continued.  5 layers of stones were removed from the exposed part of the well wall today.  Stones collapsed into the aperture were left in place if possible.  First layer produced an impasto rim sherd, small and worn.  During sectioning of the second layer terracotta fragment was removed from northern most part o the exposed wall (see drawing on p. 142 )  Two bones were found in third and fourth layers.  After the third layer was taken off another plan drawing was made by architect.  Stones in the wall still have raidal arrangement and slant inwards a little.  The soil in the middle of the structure is very wet and clayey and more uniform than within wall stones.  Photos were taken after each layer of stones was removed.  3 pieces of carbon were found within the wall soil.

Work also continued in CA42N.  Meters N11 W8-9 of locus 9 were taken down about 10cm to reach sterile soil.  In the process 2 bone, 16 impasto (including 1 rim) and 6 tile fragments, very worn were found.  Continued excavating locus 15, soil under the stump in N12 W8-9.  8 bone fragments, 2 sherds of impasto, a small plaster piece and rocchetto fragment were found.

In meters N13.14 W8-9, a new locus was opened, locus 16, at the depth of 145-150cm b.d. Since the soil became very light in color and a large amount of small to medium size rocks with pottery intermixed between them, having a roughly circular shape (around depth 120cm.) was uncovered. Locus 16 produced 2/3 latte box of pottery including 2 coil made rims. Also a part of a large coarseware vessel rim with decorated edge were found. Photos taken.
